Heightened Fears
Author: RubyDragon


High above in the clouds
A place to be free with your dreams,
escaping the rushing, destructive world below
the breeze blowing as the moon gleams,
the beauty of the stars, feeling so near
the closer to the edge, the less remaining fear,

I look down to see the hectic life below
everyone one going about the duties,
I scan the horizon and the last particle of sunset
an unbelieveable view of beauty,
as the darkness surrounds the sky
I begin to feel scared and alone, I cry,

Closer to the edge of the scraper
overwhelmed from the height,
Painful emotions take to the wind
the wings spread like the night,
as my soul flies off this building so tall
no control left, life no more, I fall!!
